Our private music lessons offer kids age 6 and above the chance to learn an instrument in a one on one format with a qualified instructor. Each week, kids attend their lesson (either 30 or 45 minutes depending on their level). Because no two students are the same, everyone's lesson program will differ slight from one another. While every program will include the fundamentals of music so that students can build their musical ability on a solid foundation of musical knowledge, individual personalities, musical preferences, musical goals etc. are taken into consideration when formulating your personalized approach and program.

Private Piano Lessons - Kids age 6 and above
Piano is one of the very best instruments one can learn, at any age but especially in the early stages of ones musical development. Because piano music employs both the treble and the bass clef in its music notation, students get the benefit of learning both clefs. Similar to learning two dialects of the same language. When learned in the early stages, this task is considerably easier then if learned later in ones musical journey. As well, piano notes are always on pitch (unlike stringed instruments) so the feedback from the instrument is a lot more positive from the beginning. For younger kids, a keyboard can be used in place of a proper piano. These smaller, lighter and easier to play instruments allow smaller kids to learn without struggling to manage a larger piano. Our teachers take a holistic approach to teaching which will include a variety of musical styles to give students the opportunity to experience as many styles as possible. Students who wish to pursue Royal Conservatory grade levels certainly can and our teachers would be happy to prepare you for those exams when the time comes. For more info or to sign up ..

Private Guitar Lessons - Kids age 7 and above
Guitar might be the most popular instrument in the world. It's role in modern pop music and songwriting make it a natural instrument to learn, not to mention how cool it can be. Learning to properly play guitar is a fair bit different then piano and has some challenges that younger kids can struggle with despite their desire to play the instrument. This is why our minimum age for private guitar lessons is a year older then piano. That extra year gives kids a chance to not only grow a bit more in order to handle the physicality of the guitar but also develop their reading ability which has a huge impact on their ability to learn the guitar. For us the most important thing is that kids have a positive first experience with lessons. Our experience tells us that the rate of success is much higher for kids starting guitar at age 7 then at age 6.
Guitar students learn the fundamentals of music in their lessons each week all while learning to play their favorite guitar songs. Our lesson rooms are equipped with all sorts of fun technology that enhance the learning. As well, with a music store at our disposal, our teachers have access to almost any piece of equipment that they want to use in a lesson. The more fun that it is, the more that kids want to do it, which translates into progress .. which is the ultimate goal. For more info or to sign up .. Call (416) 233-2232 or email us.

Private Voice/Songwriting Lessons - Kids age 6 and above
Singing is one of the worlds most universal joys. Almost everyone does it and many would love to take lessons in order to improve. Voice lessons are open to kids from the age of 6. Part of every voice lesson is dedicated to developing the students vocal strength, range and diction. The rest of the lesson is spent working on actual songs to help develop performance ability and hone the other skills in a practical role. Younger kids, with younger voices will spend less time on technique and more on actually singing since their voices are still developing and are not ready for some of the more advanced techniques. As they grow and develop, our teachers will add the appropriate exercises. No matter the age of the student, our goal is to get kids singing a lot and help them improve while they do it. All of our teachers play either piano or guitar and actively accompany their students in each lesson. As well, our technology ready lesson rooms provide students with the ability to sing with backing tracks, record their lessons and generally make the whole weekly experience fun.
